IKE, ADLAI BACK Duluth Welcomes General Stevenson To Be in Twin Cities By JOE KANE DULUTH, Minn. The warm welcome that Duluth gave Gen. Dwinht D Eisenhower this morning contrasted with the chill breezes the Republican standard bearer faced in the first speech of his third Minnesota campaign trip, SOMERSET, Pa. Four Grey- hound bus passengers died and 13 other persons were injured today in western Pennsylvania's third disastrous bus crash in 18 days. The bus, on a through run from New York to Chicago, collided with a steel-laden tractor-trailer about 500 iset from the Laurel Hill ser- vice station on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, eight miles west Somerset. Both machines were going west. They were hurled from the high- way but did not upset. One side of the bus was ripped out. A rear left wheel was knocked off the truck. Three persons were killed out- right. A fourth, David Roberts, of East Orange, N. J., murmured his name and address to hospital at- tendants a few minutes before he died. .The other dead, all as a result of head injuries, were Andrew B. Bjelbert, 39; Wilburn F.

The state of Minnesota is giving- the city of Winona for its 1952 flood fight.

They believe Eisen- hower's strategy of invading the South makes the job of holding key northern states like Pennsylvania decidedly more difficult. Fourth, the state-wide Republi- can organization, like the city ma- chine, is in weakened condition. Pennsylvania Republican boss Ma- son Owlett was forced off the Ex- ecutive Committee of the Repub- lican National Committee after Eis- enhower's nomination, and he and his followers are in a towering rage. There is even talk of a big protest write-in vote for Sen. Rob- ert A. Taft by the Owlett parti- sans, and some former Taft follow- ers are certainly still sitting on their hands. Adding up all these factors, it might be tempting to conclude that Pennsylvania is in the bag for Stevenson which would almost certainly give Stevenson the elec- tion. But no one here seems to think that this is necessarily so. The Democratic organization, both city and state, is almost as badly split as its Republican coun- terpart. Meanwhile, Gov. Fine's own personal Republican machine is purring smoothly. Fine has a vast state payroll of 48.000 em- ployes, whom he can hire or fire I at will.

II was explained that approxi- mately of the claim was removed: About S6.000 paid by the city to street department employes for flood work and the remainder paid to the county of Winona for flood work and to var- ious firms for purchase of equip- ment. The first two items are not allowable under the law governing commission allocations, and equip- ment purchases are not allowable because it can be utilized by the cily for purposes other than the flood, state officials explained. But President Theurer said does not believe that the slate ar- rived at the S100.000 figure by eliminating items. He believes the commission based the figure more on the city's needs. Keller Thanked In commenting on the allocation, both he and Mayor Pfeiffer prais- ed Sen. Keller for his assistance. The mayor, in addition, declared that "the city of Winona gratefully thanks state officials for this fine contribution in recognition of the special problem faced by Winona in fighting the Mississippi River. We have shown the state that we can help ourselves, by getting behind the Dike Fund, and this is of real assistance in solving a desperate financial problem." The state voucher had not yet been received by the city treasurer this morning. A year ago the slate commission refunded to the city on a flood-fighting bill.
